Fresh Ideas For Your Spring Table

Hello and welcome! Today I’m so happy to join 25 bloggers for a spring table tour hosted by Tammy of Pink Peppermint Design to give you tons of creative inspiration for a spring brunch or dinner, Easter celebration, or your everyday enjoyment!

If you’re arriving here from Monica Wants It, hubba hubba, how gorgeous is Monica’s table? She has the prettiest style and ideas ever!!

For those of you who are new to Shine Your Light, I’m Lisa, and my husband Mark, our three teenagers and I live in Massachusetts where I am slowly but surely renovating our 80s fixer upper.

Mark goes to Arizona every month or two for work, and last week the stars finally aligned for me to join him out there for a few days. After tons of crazy weather, snow and grey skies here in the Northeast this month, I so loved the sunshine, blue skies, funky cacti and lush bougainvillea of Arizona!

I’ll share a bit about Scottsdale and Sedona tomorrow, but I couldn’t wait to bring some spring color into our house after that little getaway!

The star of the show on this table is a vintage glass pitcher, hand blown and painted on the Venetian island of Murano and bought by Mark’s great aunt and uncle many decades ago. We’ve had it for several years but I just recently rediscovered it and realized how truly beautiful it is.

The glass is as light as a feather and the painting is so very delicate, I’m amazed it made it back to the States in one piece.

Two sweet little glasses are also part of the set.

I found these glasses below at of all places, The Christmas Tree Shop, and while they are not quite as special as the Murano glass, they compliment it perfectly (and are great for my not-so-gentle kids to use!)

I filled the pitcher and the platter it’s sitting on with flowering cherry branches and sweet little wax flowers from my favorite florist, Trader Joes 🙂

I’m also obsessed with ranunculus and could not possibly have left these at the store!

The tablecloth is actually a clearance rack shower curtain from Target.

Thrown on the diagonal, it adds a pop of color and pattern to our big table and shows some of the wood. The diagonal trick is great for using things that aren’t really tablecloths and are smaller than your table.

I think this shower curtain is much more fun used as a tablecloth, don’t you?

A quick and easy way to make your table ready for Easter brunch or dinner…….

….a few of these cuties hopping around the table! Add a little tag to each bunny along with ribbon for a cute place card at each setting.

Guaranteed my kids eat them before Easter dinner is served!

If you’re looking for a beautiful dessert for Easter Sunday, check out my favorite mother-in-law’s recipe for the best carrot cake in the history of all carrot cakes (to think I didn’t even like carrot cake before I met this one!)

The world's best carrot cake with cream cheese frosting.

It’s one of those things that you think you just want one bite of, and then before you know it the whole plate is clean, and there was no sharing involved ?. This apple upside down cake is also DELISH!

Lisa, that pitcher is so stunning! I can't get over how gorgeous it is. You've also inspired me to find a cool shower curtain to use as a tablecloth. Never would have thought of that idea, and there's so many pretty patterned ones out there. :)

Can you believe when that pitcher was first passed on to us we were less than impressed and stored it away for years? I guess with age comes a better appreciation of beauty!

Thank you Susan! It's a little brighter than I typically go and it was fun to do something different, especially since the snow is still melting and everything is so blah outside! So fun to do this tour with you!

I feel like I hogged all the pink flowers at Trader Joes but spring just can't get here fast enough this year! Thanks for your kind words Meg! :)

Lisa, your table looks so inviting. I do love that Murano glass pitcher. I'm sure the fact that it came from a loved one makes it all that more special. And how clever to add a touch of gold with the chocolate bunny. I know as a chocolate lover I would be happy to see that at my table.

Thank you Patti! Mark's great aunt and uncle are so special to us and I love being able to use their treasures in our home!
